Yesterday I finished upgrading my RIA 1911. I put a Wilson Combat commander style hammer and a Wilson Combat drop-in beavertail grip safety on it. The mods were fairly easy to put in and the grip safety actually did just drop in and work. I had heard stories where people had to file them a bit to get them to work but mine fit great.

Nice Dude. Love the grips too, glad to hear bout the drop in grip safety to, heard that it could be a nightmare, but turned out sweet looking.

Some people say I'm a grumpy, mean, old man.
That's not true.
I have the heart of a kind and gentle soul...
in a jar on my desk.


No man is a match for a woman's tears.
When in need! Use and RPG……

If you've got them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow.

Not everything that can be counted counts and not everything that counts can be counted.

I don't care what people say as long as I get what I want.

I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it!

"One of the most horrible features of war is that all the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting."
—George Orwell, Homage to Catalonia, 1938

I CAN HAVE THE WEAPON I REALLY ALWAYS WANTED !!!! I DO IT MY SELF,
WHY!!!!!! BECAUSE I CAN, CAN YOU?????
